Delaware State Police detectives are investigating another bomb threat called in to an area pharmacy November 2. An unknown male suspect called the Manor Pharmacy located on North DuPont Highway in New Castle and asked to speak to the pharmacist. The suspect then demanded that prescription medications be placed in a bag and left outside of the rear door of the pharmacy. The suspect stated that if his demands were not met, a bomb would be detonated. The pharmacist contacted 9-1-1 and evacuated the store without complying to the suspects demands. A state police canine trained in explosive detection and his handler responded to the pharmacy and searched both the interior and exterior of the building. No explosive devices were found and the store was re-opened. It is not known if the caller is the same person who had made previous threats at the Rite Aid Pharmacy in New Castle, November 1 or the Rite Aid Pharmacy in Rehoboth October 30.
